PHOTO 8/17/2020: What is a photograph?


We will discuss the following ideas:

  1. Snapshot vs. Photograph
  2. Selfie vs. Self Portrait
  3. Choices that you make when photographing with a basic camera

TAKE NOTES during class discussions. You will submit notes for credit each week. If you are absent, you must watch the Zoom video to get the notes.

If you were absent to any of the meetings this week, go to Google Classroom, where the recorded meetings have been posted under Classwork>Recorded Zoom Meetings.
